Can You Do Anything About 8 - 10 mm Periodontal Pockets?

Imagine this scenario:  You have been told by your dentist or hygienist that you have deep periodontal pockets.  Some are as deep as 8-10 mms.

They tell you that you need to have a 'deep cleaning' or SRP (Scaling and Root Planing Treatment)  Check out the average cost on these. 

So, you start to figure out that you need to get your periodontal pockets down to 3mm or less to be considered 'healthy'.

That seems like quite a jump from 8 or 10 mms to 3, doesn't it?  

http://blog.toothygrinsstore.com/2013/06/scaling-and-root-planing-costs-in.htmlThese tips were specially designed to aid in this purpose.   Of course, no guarantee can be made because every human body is different.

But the tool that goes along with these tips, has helped a number of people shrink their pockets.

You can always find out for sure, but having your periodontal pockets measured again at your next office visit.  Then you can compare the new results to the old.   If they are getting smaller or have completely shrunk to that 3mm or less level,  I guess you have been doing something right!

Check out these tips now.
